Friends of the Sunflower River 16th Annual Meeting!
The 2018 meeting is 12noon Saturday, Feb 17th, on the riverbank behind Quapaw Canoe Company, 3rd & Sunflower in downtown Clarksdale. We’ll start with a bonfire and potluck meeting, and then jump into a Sunflower River Cleanup afterwards. Come join us, if you can. Quapaw Canoe Company is donating canoes and paddleboards for the cleanup. Dress for the weather. Bring a loaf of bread, a bag of chips, or some hot dish to share at potluck. We’ll provide serving and eating utensils.
Love your River
Dear Y’all: The general annual membership meeting of the Friends of the Sunflower River traditionally takes place at noon on the Saturdayclosest to Valentine’s Day. As you know, the Friends is now overseen by the Lower Mississippi River Foundation. So we will now carry on this fine spring tradition with a broadened scope. Our focus tomorrow is the Sunflower. But the LMRF is concerned about health & recreation on the entire Lower Mississippi Valley, the big river and all of its tributaries. As result our caring group of river lovers can operate from the same lonely river, but now with a bigger dream and broader vision. This and more to be shared tomorrow around the bonfire potluck!
